Back illuminated digital output CMOS image sensor

CIS120 has been designed as an easy to use general purpose imager for space applications. Back-illumination, combined with low readout noise and on-chip analogue-to-digital conversion give excellent image quality.

Pixel read timing is set by an on-chip sequencer to simplify use and to reduce pin count.
A column parallel ADC is used to quantise each row of pixels in turn and is controlled by its own sequencer. Resolution can be set from 8 to 14 bits.

Four LVDS channels output the image data and are controlled by the readout sequencer to scan along each row in turn. Two LVDS synchronisation channels allow accurate data sampling.

All configuration settings are programmed over an SPI. This includes shutter mode, ADC resolution and bias current values.
Package options will range from a ceramic PGA to metal and ceramic three-side buttable designs for use in mosaic focal planes.
